Funeral homes often submit obituaries as a service to the families they are assisting. However, we will be happy to accept obituaries from family members. The first 100 words are free; over 100 words is $0.50/word.
Types of obituaries
The Missourian publishes two types of obituaries — family obituaries and life stories.
A life story is a closer look at a person's life and involves a reporter contacting family and friends. Life stories are based on newsworthiness and consent of the family. Life stories.
